"I played professionally for a number of years both in the U.S. and abroad. I currently coach at St. Joseph's College in Indiana and have used TSF as a guideline to develop a fitness manuel for the program.
Last year was my first season there and both teams had no previous training program and were clearly unfit. I like how TSF very clearly lays out the various stages of the year round fitness program, and explains the signifigance of each step.
With my experience as a player and as a fitness nut I found more truth in TSF than any other fitness manual."
Eric R, Coach & Ex Pro Player
"I can't speakly highly enough of the Total Soccer Fitness package. It is so in-depth yet so simple to follow. I know it's something I will turn to at the start of every season to plan our training programme.
Total Soccer Nutrition make such an over complicated subject so easy to follow and there is so much information in there I can apply with my team. Outstanding!"
Jimmy P, Soccer Coach, UK
"I bought Total soccer Fitness for my 16 year old son who is desperate to play professionally. He is very enthusiastic and took on board the principles in the book. He trains most days, either on his own or with his team and I know he is making great progress.
We don't know if he'll ever realize his dream of playing at the top level but this resource gives him the best chance!"
Christine W, Soccer Mom
"I used Total Soccer Fitness to improve my fitness during preseason. I also used it to get back to full fitness after injury. This has been my best season in years and I'm enjoying playing as much as when I was 10 years old. I hope to make steady improvements and will start to apply the guidelines in Total Soccer Nutrition."
Mark L, Player, UK
""I coach all ages at soccer and I'm always looking for new information to improve my knowledge and ability. This is the best book I've read on soccer fitness. There's a lot of great information that is easy to apply on the training field. As a coach it saves me time thinking up new drills and I now know how to structure a high quality training program. Thanks!""
Andy D., Coach and Semi Pro Player
"One of the best sports conditioning resources (for any sport) I've ever used and I've seen a lot in my time! It shows you exactly how to achieve a level of fitness that only the pros used to be privy to. Follow the guidelines in this book and I guarantee your game will improve leaps and bounds"
Edgar Leoni, Strength & Conditioning Specialist Australia
"Well, I've just been offered a full-ride scholarship and I can't believe it! I've worked hard to get there and I used Total Soccer Fitness for to get fit for the game. I know I'll use it again and again. Thanks!"
Jarred C, Soccer Player, Washington
"The book has been very helpful, particularly the exercise programs. I am working with my 11-year old daughter and seven of her teammates during the offseason on a speed and agility program I put together from your book. I designed four different 1-hour sessions that I rotate between.
The girls really have fun with the workouts, but it's too soon to tell whether it will improve their speed or quickness (We did a baseline test before we started the workouts, and I will test them again after 12 weeks to see if there was any progress.) I'll let you know if there is an improvement from the baseline tests as a gauge to the effectiveness of the workouts."
"I've always been a fit player - one of the fittest on my team but Total Soccer Fitness has shown me a whole new level. I've followed the drills and programs inside and I am definitely fittest I've ever been! As a result I much more consistent and I the amount of energy I have really has increased my confidence. I recommend Total Soccer Fitness to any player or coach."
John M., Soccer Player
"Well done on producing an excellent resource for soccer. As a Strength & Conditioning specialist working with several teams it's really helped me to design high quality programs that get results. Whenever I'm stuck for ideas I know I can use the drills to quickly put an effective session together."
Michael S, Trainer, Coach
"I have applied the principles in Total Soccer Fitness for over a season now. Last year was our best ever and was due in no small part to being a very fit team. My players not only seem fitter but are more skillful yet we do very little skill work with them. Many of our players have said they feel like they can run all day and we've even have some slow players who yu would now call quick. Total Soccer Fitness is very well presented, very professional and very effective."
Arthur M., Soccer Coach
Heres the story: Weve all seen players that lack any real skill and technique but whose speed and power makes them deadly effective. These are the same players that are often despised by their more talented team-mates (players who are usually left to the warm the subs bench).
Most coaches agree that there is no substitute for technical ability. But when the stakes are raised and the standard is high enough, there is only ONE criteria a coach looks for in a player...
It doesnt matter how much skill and natural ability you have. If you cant apply it consistently in a game situation, then you wont even get picked in the starting eleven. And you certainly wont fulfil any ambitions you have of playing at a higher level.
Compare that to the ungainly player who trips themselves up just trying the simplest of tricks but who has the blistering speed and basic ball control to frighten any defence.
Soccer, at EVERY level of the game, is littered with players who lack poise and finesse. But they more than make up for their technical shortfalls with natural athleticism. Remember this...
Heres the key to consistent success in soccer: When you finally learn the REAL secrets to becoming super-fit for soccer, blending proven sports-science with a desire to succeed...
Dont think you have to be some kind of naturally blessed athlete endowed with favourable genetics. Nor do you have to spend hours everyday training or sucking down expensive performance enhancing supplements. The bottom line is you can apply these closely-guarded principles almost immediately...
Its astonishingly easy. These training principles are simple to get. And best of all...
What Total Soccer Fitness reveals to you will make you a faster, fitter, stronger and more deadly effective player, whatever your skill level.
This means youll suddenly play with more energy, more confidence and greater consistency than you ever believed possible (while everyone around you fades and falls victim to fatigue) and youll win plenty of accolades.
Yes, even against more gifted, more experienced opponents.
Heres a taste of what youre about to learn:
Imagine being fresh and strong in the latter stages of a game when everyone else around you is fading fast.. As a coach, imagine your players revelling in the final 20 minutes as the opposition literally crumbles. That's what soccer-specific endurance conditioning can bring. In this section you'll discover:
Muscular strength forms the foundation of nearly all athletic movements. Not only is it crucial for resisting challenges and winning tackles, the right type of strength will increase your speed, range of passing and jumping ability. Here's what you'll discover:
Speed and quickness separates the outstanding players from the average - the successful teams from the runners up. As the standard increase... so does the speed of play. But being quick involves much more than just the ability to run fast. Total Soccer Fitness shows you how a quick player can be made... regardless of genetic make up.
Here's what you'll discover:
Goalkeepers Not Left Out... For Once!
Each chapter of Total Soccer Fitness ends with a section for goalkeepers. Most coaching and conditioning books leave them out... even when they are the first name on the team sheet!
If you're a goalkeeper or coach you'll be pleased to know Total Soccer Fitness covers ALL the important conditioning principles and drills for this all-important position!
This has to be the most undervalued aspect of any conditioning program. It's a shame because increasing flexibility can significantly reduce your risk of injury (both acute and chronic injuries) and it can also increase your speed and power. You'll be more agile and by increasing your body awareness it can improve your technical skill and ability too.
"Fail to prepare and you prepare to fail." The warm up and cool down are arguably the most important part of any training session. In Total Soccer Fitness, you'll see:
In less than one afternoon, with nothing more than some very basic equipment, you can build a complete physical profile of yourself or your players (and have a bit of fun in the process). The data you collect will be priceless and many specialist centers would charge you hundreds of dollars for a similar report. Armed with your own fitness stats you can design an ultra-specific program that will maximize your results in the shortest possible time. You'll also discover:
Note For Soccer Coaches...
Once you have tested your players at the start of pre-season, develop a team plan that focuses on all the elements of fitness. Give individual players drills they can perform away from team training that focuses on their individual weaknesses. This is what professional clubs do and it's easier than you think...
And most importantly of all... Total Soccer Fitness shows you exactly how to put together the very best program based on YOUR needs.
You could choose to work on just one component of soccer fitness your strength & power perhaps or your endurance for example, and it will make a tremendous difference. Or... you could go all-out and become the complete player and the most respected member of your team.
Total Soccer Fitness has been designed with "everyday" soccer coaches and players in mind. Whether you can train 2 days a week or 5, whether you just want to improve your stamina or only your speed you can do so with ease and to a greater level than you ever imagined. And you'll also be given:
Detailed pre-season programs based on how much training time YOU or your team have available.
Precise programs for the in-season and off-season.
A step-by-step guide to creating your own custom made, soccer conditioning program even if you're part way through the season already.
For a limited time, Total Soccer Fitness comes with these five astonishing FREE bonus ebooks. But don't worry... you don't have to read hundreds and hundreds of pages before you can start using this cutting edge soccer training system!
Written so that it corresponds easily with the main Total Soccer Fitness manual, "The Soccer Exercise Library" is a coaching dream...
Each section contains dozens of sample drills and exercises based around a single element of fitness - aerobic endurance or explosive power for example.
Each section is also split into "drills with the ball" and "drills without the ball". As a player or coach it's important to incorporate both types of drills into conditioning sessions...
The addition of a ball makes training more soccer-specific and helps players to transfer fitness gains on to the pitch. Drills without a ball allow for the maximum amount of physical effort -- crucial for reaching the highest levels of speed and strength a player is capable of.
Here's a sample drill from The Soccer Exercise library:
Of course... each drill is explained clearly and concisely with coaching pointers where appropriate.
Nearly all of the drills require little or no equipment (obviously the exception is the strength training section). Just a few cones, a soccer pitch, running track or a local playing field is all you require. Many of the drills can even be performed in your own back yard.
Here is another sample drill: It's one of the few drills that requires a piece of sports equipment - in this case an agility ladder. But guess what?
If you don't own an agility ladder and don't want to buy one (they tend to be over priced for what they are), Total Soccer Fitness shows you how to make your own - dirt cheap and just as effective!
The Soccer Exercise Library contains dozens of strength training exercises, circuit training exercises and explosive power drills...
Here is one of the plyometric drills... Plyometrics is a very simple yet very effective way to convert muscular strength into explosive power but you MUST follow some important guidelines for it to be effective. Needless to say, Total Soccer Fitness covers plyometric training completely.
As a soccer player you can cherry-pick exercises that suit your own needs and preferences safe in the knowledge they are making you a fitter and better player.
As a soccer coach or trainer imagine how much time you will save planning training sessions and thinking up new drills for your players.
